  1. Tracking of heavy vehicles for estimating heavy load distribution across the highway system and Weigh-In-Motion Calibration

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 122FH4

    Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) has been employed as a major technology to collect heavy vehicles’ data on the freeways. Because WIM is one of the most costly and sophisticated data collection system, how to effectively utilize the valuable WIM data, monitor WIM stations' performance, and identify out of calibration stations are especially important. In this project, we propose an innovative and yet pract ...

  2. Transportation System Performance Measurement Using Existing Loop Infrastructure

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 102FH2

    With continuing emphasis on transportation sustainability and fiscal stewardship, utilizing existing loop detector infrastructure to obtain more accurate, reliable and comprehensive traffic system performance measures is desired by many transportation agencies. In Phase I study, we found that the capability of the Inductive Loop Detector (ILD) signature technology to re-identify and classify vehic ...

  3. Smartphone Signal Alert Status

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH1

    The primary objective for Phase I was to design and develop a proof of concept system demonstrating the basic functionality and feasibility to deploy technology in the field. During the six-month effort, a detailed Concept of Operations document was prepared that served as a foundation for the design and development of the SmartCross system. The core components of the system: (a) Smartphone applic ...

  4. Augmenting Inductive Loop Vehicle Sensor Data with SPAT and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH2

    In this proposal, we have proposed a program for twenty months to build on the basic ideas and feasibility developed in Phase I of this SBIR in order to demonstrate the practical use of DSRC technologies with signal controller for adaptive timing with a goal towards commercialization. Specifically, we intend to further develop, build and integrate advanced signal control algorithms that make use o ...

  5. An Advanced Algorithm for Radar Derived Bathymetry

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 913N

    NOAA can reduce costs and improve efficiency by remotely monitoring harbors, navigation channels, and coastlines for bathymetric changes. This will aid NOAA in its mission to maintain waterways and assure maritime safety. This remote sensing can be accomplished by implementing a new radar derived bathymetry capability. Areté Associates proposes to demonstrate an advanced algorithm to derive ba ...

  6. Mobile VHF Lightning Mapping System

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 942RDW

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop a mobile VHF-based sensor suite for detecting and mapping lightning flashes. The proposes Lightning Mapping Unmanned Sensor (LUTMUS)™ System will meet small unmanned aerial system (UAS) cost, size, weight, and power (C-SWAP) constraints and should be capable of being placed on virtually any small UAS. The most critical component of the LITMUS syst ...

  7. Automated Image Analysis for Fisheries Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 921F

    We propose to develop software that is capable of automatically classifying and measuring the length of fish observed in video. We will focus initially on underwater video, but much of the software will also be applicable to fish onboard commercial fishing vessels as well. Our approach is to first segment fish based on their motion in the water. For this purpose, we will make use of existing au ...

  8. 6 Dimensional Sensor Package (6DSP)

    SBC: Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07NH1

    Understanding the kinematics of intruding structures (floor plans, doors, roofs, etc.) as well as dummy motions is critical to safety related research. DTS believes the best way to acquire this data is to use small lightweight sensor packages to dynamically track the motion of single points using six degrees-of-freedom measurements. This methodology does not require line of sight to the measured ...

  9. Design, Development and Testing of Optimized Composite "Soft Crack Arrestors"

    SBC: ENGINEERING MECHANICS CORPORATION OF COLUMBUS            Topic: 07PH1

    Emc2's proposal provided to DOT in response to SBIR Research topic 07-PH1 on "Design Optimization for Soft Crack Arrestors" focuses on the development of key material property data needed to design "soft crack arrestors". This testing will be done over a range of temperatures to cover extreme conditions for future pipeline designs. It is also essential to develop this data at the loading rates t ...

  10. A First Responder Tool for Rapic, Efficient, and Effective Response to Hazardous Material Incidents

    SBC: QUIMBA SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: 07PH2

    The nightmare scenario in HAZMAT transport (or storage) is an incident in the proximity of a densely populated area. This issue is so critical that Congress has, on a number of occasions, considered restricting HAZMAT transportation, routing it around metropolitan areas. While so far such restrictions have not been implemented, the HAZMAT transportation industry faces mounting legal and insuranc ...
